Want to see what could happen after the events of The Dark Knight Rises?
A new online series called The Dark Knight Legacy does exactly that, and has presented an awesome short film that follows John Blake in his new role as Nightwing, as he takes on the mysterious villain known as Red Hood. Did that pique your interest? Check out the video below:
We’re working on fixing some errors now, in the meantime, it can be seen here.
How great was that! Not only does it deliver the start to a fantastic story that could offer a continuation of Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, it brings in a number of characters that fans have been dying to see. Characters like Nightwing, Red Hood, Black Mask, The Ventriliquist, the Penguin, and even more planned that only add to the potential awesomeness of this series. The actors and crew involved all seem to have a lot of passion for the project, which stands out in the slick filming and well choreographed action scenes we have seen so far. You can check out the full cast below:
Fans of the comics might recognize the scenes of this video from Judd Winick’s Under the Red Hood, which was turned into a DC Animated Feature that starred Bruce Greenwood as Batman, Neil Patrick Harris as Nightwing and Jensen Ackles as Red Hood. That storyline would obviously fit in pretty well with the state of Gotham after The Dark Knight Rises, but don’t take our word for it. The actors involved in the film discuss the setting and story they are trying to tell on their indiegogo page.
You can check out the various perks (custom made Red Hood helmet!) and the goal they are trying to reach here, where they have already reached a third of their funding! You can help make The Dark Knight Legacy a reality, but for now we’ll leave you to watch that awesome video again.
